Students at WPU are required to complete four (4) Writing Intensive (WI) courses and two (2) Technology Intensive (TI) courses. These courses are not additional “stand-alone” courses but any course — within the Core, or any major or any minor or any free elective — that has been designated as a WI or TI course.
